Cheery Lynn Designs - Roses

Good Morning fellow crafters and bloggers! :) I hope everyone is having a great week!

This week over at the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge our new theme is 'Roses'. 

As always we have a great prize of $20 voucher to spend online in the store, and this month we have an extra special  monthly prize of a BIG SHOT for a random winner selected on the 2nd July!  Brilliant! :)

For my card I used one of my favourite Mo Manning images and coloured her with PM's and Flexmarkers.  I hand stitched K&Co paper and made the roses using pearly pink and shimmery pink  paper from my scrap box.  The very best thing about making your own blooms is that you can make them match perfectly, and use up all those oddments! :)

Sandy has done a brilliant tutorial on making Roses from Cheery Lynn Dies HERE using  the Large Rose, Medium Rose and Miniature Rose dies.   

I made 3 different size blooms from the same 3 size dies including the rose-buds by cutting 3 layers of each size for the larger roses, and just scaling down in size for the smaller ones.  They are secured with tiny brads and a blob of Viva Decor Pearly Pen. 

All dies used on this card are:
